americans are looking at the romney ryan ticket as one that will address issues and will deliver a plan that has impact on middle class americans, that will bring down taxes for all americans. period. there's only one candidate that's actually talking about raising taxes and there's another candidate, the romney ryan ticket, that will cut taxes for all americans. so i think as we go into this, we'll hear a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase f that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we hear

romney's runningmate paul ryan which brings us to this week's big question. was mitt romney's choice of ryan mass take? >> yes. -- a mistake? >> yes. >> i don't think so because it brought renewed focus and attention on the economy and debt which may have helped him in some camps. >> good for the future of the party, not so helpful necessarily this time around. even though he's a very cale capable politician. i think rob portman in ohio becomes a question. he could have helped in ohio, perhaps you could argue that and ohio is really something romney needs. >> he forced the seniors to think about what they like about medicare and the welfare state and they decided they liked it. and that's -- chris: that's well said. i hear doctors, the people don't -- they get very nervous when you talk about changing their insurance. >> even if you say it only applies to people under 55. >> the pick hurt him in florida and didn't help in ohio and he's got to win those states to be president. chris: i think ryan hurts. thanks for a great round table. congratulations to hbo and to you for those four e
this race. >> what's interesting is, yes, you have sort of the official romney/ryan line that mitt romney can't form a complete sentence and barack obama is cicero and it's going to be very hard. but what christie said is what you're hearing from people behind the scenes. there was a piece with a lot of anonymous quotes from romney aides saying, we need a game changer. i think the good news for romney is if you look back to those primary debates that you were talking about, he did the best in the debates where it seemed like he absolutely had to win. so the south carolina debate, seemed like he was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide an

. 80 points higher, 13-5. the romney-ryan ticket criticizing the obama administration's handling of the libyan situation. by failing to maintaining our influence and stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. now, here is what paul ryan said to chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> their response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know that it's a planned tres attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be tragedy in and of itself. the fact that it's part of a bigger picture the obama foreign policy is literally unravelling before our eyes on the tv screens. stuart: and look at this one, the white house is trying to pass through 450 million dollars in aid in egypt supposed to help the muslim brotherhood to transform into democracy. the republicans in congress are trying to block it. the issue in cairo, warning to missionaries living especially women in cairo, should take precautions to protect themselves. and time is money. 30 se
. among its findings, only 51% know the romney-ryan plan would preserve traditional medicare for those 55 and older and retain it as an option for those now younger than that. only about half knew that mitt romney would keep the bush tax cuts in place. fewer than half knew that romney and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the l
presidential debate. we will hear more from paul ryan about what he thinks romney has to do to woifrn the undecided voters. >>> let's talk about the weather now. shall we? >> maria molina is here with a look at our current temperatures. >> good morning ainsley and heather. good to see you this morning. good morning everyone. we are starting off on a cool note across portions of the great lakes. 44 in the city of cleveland. as we head eastbound new york city looking at the current temperature on the cool side as well as 54 degrees. if you live out west warm temperatures get ready anywhere from montana into the portion of the central rockies. you will notice a drop in temperatures. today on the warm side upper 70s down into portions of utah. you will be talking about actually some snow by midweek out there. also some freezing temperatures. inbound 70 not too bad. parts of the southeast, in the southeast dealing with thunderstorms could produce severe weather from panhandle to mississippi and alabama. that storm will bring heavy sri rain across parts of tennessee and the carolinas. ainsl
sundays ryan telling chris what he thinks romney needs to do at the first debate to win the white house. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that's what we are doing. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can either have dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or have a stag innocent opportunity to fosters dependency. we can stick to the failed policies of the last four years and next four years. stagnation verses growth, dependency verses opportunity and upward mobility. that's the classic choice clear difference we are offering. what we hope people get out of the de bite is the choice. i think people will see what kind of a president is he going to be? this particular debate that's what matters and all of the debates. i know what. obama has done all of the empty promises and broken promise misses i know about the ugly stagnant economy what is mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track. >> it is what laura ingram is talking about. what she thinks will come out of wednesday's debate. >> one thing the de
. if you're looking for specifics in the romney/ryan tax plan, maybe you have to keep searching. because paul ryan says, he doesn't have time to explain it. the republicans claim they can lower all individual tax rates by 20% and pay for it by targeting deductions for the top earners. but listen to what happened when chris wallace of fox news pressed paul ryan for hard figures. >> there's been a traditional democratic and republican consensus, lowering tax rates, by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i haven't given me the math. >> i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> all right the tax policy center in washington has already studied the romney/ryan tax plan and concluded it is mathematically impossible for a tax cut of that size to work without either adding a tax burden on the middle class, or increasing the deficit. >> and talk about getting the last laugh, john. whitney kropp, the michigan teen who was nominated to her homecoming court as a joke absolutely dazzled at the game on friday. look at her. and she has this to say to ot
. the american dollar is not worth what it used to be. i was not excited about romney at all. once paul ryan got in there, that kind of changed my opinion. i thought we had control of congress and we had a chance with obama for four years. now they can say we can tax you for doing nothing. i will give the other party a try. i will let the republicans have this one and see what they can do in a few years. if they suck, my vote will change again. host: interesting call. now we are on the line in pennsylvania with pstill phylis. turn down the tv. caller: hi. host: you are an independent. what are you thinking right now? caller: i will not vote for biden. he sounds crazy, always granting. nothing he says makes sense to me. as far as obama, i watch him. when he went overseas and talk about how we need to apologize for everything we do. and then i heard an interview that he gave with someone when he said that after his mother- in-law had surgery that it would be a good idea if an older person lived on pain pills instead of having their problem taken care of. another thing, and egos around the country
in these swing states, and if you look at that medicare question its devastating for romney and ryan. >> cenk: last word on this, and if noam is right and i've seen the polls, and he is right going further right didn't work. you can't really criticize president from the left, i don't think you can if you're republican. what do they have left? >> they don't have states to run to, and i think they've played that chess game. i think he's inextricably tied to ryan, and i hate to see t but they'll have to double down and have the of a presidential presence. that's what is going to make the difference for romney. the substance isn't. i think seeming presidential, going in as an underdog, which is he is going as president that's the only hope he has. and that's very slim. >> if it's that hopeless in the debate, he may have less hope than i realized. great analysis. now when we come back, there is a new hollywood movie out against teachers' unions. the conservatives have figured it out, go hollywood. this is pretty nefarious. i'll show you the real reason why think made this movie.

romney and ryan have yet to tail how they would finance a 20% tax cut. >> it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> that was kristin walker reporting. >>> it is time for fact or fiction segment checking the candidates claims against the facts. we will start with prauchl and his claim that taxes are lower on families than they have been in probably the last 50 years. that's not entirely true. average tax rates were slight lower in 1 '64, '63 and 2004. and mitt romney said college costs have risen 25% under the democrats that is not entirely true. college tuition for two year ands sup 23% but according to the education department when adjusted for inflation tuition is up 7 to 8% overall. >>> criminals who were sentenced to prison for life in california when they were juveniles could get a second chance thanks to a bill signed by governor brown today. more than 300 inmates are serving life without parole for murders they committed as teenagers. brown says the bill would allow inmates to ask judges to reconsider their sentences after they serve at least 15 years. judges coul
. >> mitt romney and paul ryan seem to demonstrate why the united states is now ranked 25th in the world for mathematics. they both produced economic plans but neither appears to stand up to scrutiny. and this is particularly painful for paul ryan, who has described him as a policy wonk, a numbers guy, and a man who is always prepared to do the math. we're joined now by jared bernstein, former chief economic adviser to vice president joe biden and a man who eats numbers for breakfast. jared, we mention mr. ryan's problems with the math, so please take a listen. >> you're the master of the budget, so briefly lets go through the plan. >> i don't know exactly when it balances because we haven't -- i don't want to get wonky on you but we haven't run the numbers on that specific plan. >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all the math but -- >> paul ryan says he doesn't have the time to explain his budget but we do. so you tell us, does it add up? >> no, it doesn't. and the problem that he's having basically is that of two
dyson, mitt romney's wife says she's concerned about his mental health. paul ryan says he's inarticulate. if he can't think straight and he can't speak properly, is mitt romney george bush in disguise? >> i'll tell what you. i want to give you the baseline, i don't have time to give you the numbers. look, obviously this is a campaign that has gone awry. his great he is help mete, his wife, has revealed his greatest fault line. his own wife casting suspicion on the -- >> to be fair you have extrapolated somewhat. do you really think that that comment by his wife indicated a genuine anxiety she has for his mental well-being? >> well perhaps, an unspoken one. i don't think that obviously when she said mental well-being, i think she's talking about the emotional. the toughness it takes to stand in office. i'm not suggesting he somehow has borderline personality. i'm suggesting that the border states however are coming into view here and that the swing states certainly are up for grabs because mitt romney has squandered a serious purchase on his right wing constituency, gotten through paul ry
it once and he can preserve it again. ryan-romney ticket, they're doing damage to their own brand here. paul ryan comes out and says i'm going to tell the truth, i'm the guy that's going to talk numbers, i'm the guy who knows what's going on here, and then to say i can't really explain this to you. >> paul ryan -- they can pay for these budget take overs. they are assuming dynamic budgets. >> i love that, it's called supply side. here's what i love to do. if you believe in dynamic budgets, answer me this. hold on guys, let me get this out. dynamic scoring in a budget. if you agree with this, i'll fall over in this chair, every dollar you pay in head start, 20 years from now saves you in prison costs. >> this is a simple political question, obama uses the bush middle class cuts, but that's just an extension of what george w. bush put in place. what romney is saying, he's going to up the ante from here. why doesn't mitt romney make that case? >> you saw romney go almost halfway, he talked about the tax cut, but he has to go back to that reagan model and talk about this and talk about tha
on every program it seems, was that the media is pushing mitt romney and paul ryan for specifics on their budget plan, on deficit reduction, but i believe it was haley barbour and others that say the president is not being held to that same standard, the example they bring up is that the president says 1 million jobs -- mitt romney said 12 million and he has not explained but nevertheless, they see this is not equal treatment. when the president is on stage domestic policy, will he be under more fire to talk about the direction of the country because the responsibility and the onus right now is on him being the incumbent? >> i mean, absolutely. here's the reality. if you look at this in terms of, you know, what i think is going to end up happening in this debate, both candidates are going to force -- are going to be forced to answer the gaps if you will. i think the difference is, romney's gaps are the size of the grand canyon. the president i think has laid out pretty clear specific agenda in terms of where he wants to go. plus he has a record that he can go back to. he has a re
